  • Key strengths

    The business successfully implemented a strategic reorganisation in 2009 that created a smaller, more flexible and cost competitive operating footprint capable of delivering stable earnings and cash flow over a broad range of economic conditions. The restructured operating platform allows the business to focus on key regional sectors and value added product offerings and to retain a strong geographical presence in North and South America, Europe and Asia. These product offerings include chromic acid for metal finishing and wood treatment, chrome sulphate for leather tanning and chrome oxide for use in construction, refractory and metal production.
